Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Monday said his government has filed an FIR against the president and three members of the Editors Guild of India (EGI), and accused them of trying to provoke clashes in the state. Singh told a press conference here that the EGI published a “totally one-sided” report without understanding the complexity of the crisis faced by Manipur, the background and the history of the state. 


The Editors Guild in a report published last week had critiqued media coverage out of Manipur, a state which has seen ethnic clashes for the last four months. It has criticised one-sided reporting by some media outlets, slammed the internet ban as being detrimental to press reporting and claimed there were indications that the state leadership had turned partisan during the conflict.

“The state government has filed an FIR against the members of the Editors Guild who are trying to create more clashes in the state of Manipur,” Singh said. Besides EGI President Seema Mustafa, others booked are three senior journalists — Seema Guha, Bharat Bhushan and Sanjay Kapoor. “They are anti-state, anti-national and anti-establishment (people) who came to pour venom. Had I known it before, would not have allowed them to enter,” the chief minister claimed.
